Helm's Brigade - Brigadier General Benjamin H. Helm.
Colonel Joseph H. Lewis.
Adams' Brigade - Brigadier General Daniel Adams.

Stovall's Brigade - Brigadier General Marcellus A.Stovall.
Adam's and Stovall's Brigades, advancing from the north, and marching with the LaFayette Road between them, Adams on the west and Stovall on the east of it, had penetrated to this point at 11 a.m.
The left of Helm's Brigade had been shattered by three unsuccessful assaults on the lines north and east of the Kelly Field. The right of Helm's Brigade had forced itself into a gap in John Beatty's Brigade, pushed a part of the latter back to the LaFayette Road, and captured two of its guns, being then repulsed.
Beatty, with portions of his force, first strongly resisted, and then with the help of Stanley's Brigade of Negley's Division checked the advance of Adam's Brigade - General Adams being wounded and captured.
At this point VanDerveer's Brigade of Brannan's Division, on its way to assist Baird, emerged from the woods on the west side of the road, wheeled into the face of Stovall's Brigade, charged it and drove it back,
pursuing to a point 100 yards north of Kelly Field. From this line, assisted by the Brigades of Grose, Dodge, parts of Willich, and Berry, detached from the Divisions of Palmer and Johnson, Breckinridge's Division was forced beyond the Union left. It was then further withdrawn and its place taken by Gist's and Liddell's Divisions of Walker's Corps. Late in the afternoon Breckinridge's troops again advanced, taking part in the last attack of the Confederate right wing, heavily assaulted Baird's position, followed that Division to the LaFayette Road, and bivouacked in this portion of Kelly Field.
